“The fascists already have power. The point is
that some way must be found to expose them and combat them. An electoral
choice of ten different fascists is like choosing which way one wishes to die.
The holder of so called public office is always merely an extension of the
hated ruling class. It is to our benefit that this person be openly
hostile, despotic, and unreasoning.”
-George L. Jackson
There is absolutely no such thing as the ‘lesser of the evils’.
In the past four years, the United States has
(and in most cases is continuing to) intensely bombed to smithereens the
peoples of Libya (north Africa), Somalia (east Africa), Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan,
etc. with Predator-drone missiles and/or aircraft bombing. Bits of body
parts of babies, children, women, and men spread across these lands. This is
the “hope and change” for which many of you voted, not to mention the U.S.
Gulag of torture and imprisonment - called Guantanamo - that remains opened and
functioning. This is U.S.
‘democracy’ in action. Can you hear the screams of humanity or do you
even care?! Pay attention! Listen to their screams!
This is the Obama death. Death to any and all who
oppose the corporate-controlled U.S. Empire!
Thanks goes to the mis-leadership of so
many so-called ‘progressives’ and those who claim to be on the ‘left’ in this
nation who continue to support this warmongering, predator-drone
president. It doesn’t matter to them, even as they write their fancy books and
use their complex and shallow rhetoric to subtlety rationalize murder and
empire in the very name of opposing it! After all, Barack Obama is black, isn’t
he? That makes it all okay, right? Wrong!
Notwithstanding the draconian and
unconstitutional NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), ‘Kill List,’
police-state in this nation itself; this land has descended into the
worst state of affairs in its history. But it’s okay because Obama is
president. Right? Wrong!!!!
Thanks to the blind color fixation in the U.S. on the part of blacks and non-blacks alike,
has intensified in being the monster of the entire world - both
internally and externally. But what the hell do you care?! Think about it.
But it’s okay because Obama is president. Right? Wrong!
Those of you who support the Obama brand - this
neo-liberal fascist - have blood all over your hands. There is absolutely no
such thing as the ‘lesser of the evils,’ as evil abounds in the smooth rhetoric
of Barack Obama and that of Mitt Romney. But you have been so
dumbed-down that you don’t even get it, do you?
Black America wake up!!! Do not cast your lot
with this filthy, hypocritical, corrupt system. Think of your own and humanity
and that of the people of Mother Earth! Perhaps, this plea will overwhelmingly
fall upon deaf ears. Nevertheless, it has been made. WE MUST GET THIS
BLOOD OFF OUR HANDS!
Each one, reach one. Each one, teach one. Onward,
then, my sisters and brothers! Onward!
